Runs like a charm but getting the mix right is tricky, took about a week of checking my plugs every 20 miles before I got it right. Tuning it with a $5 homemade manometer was very helpful.

My buddy makes excellent exhausts for the xs650, he's on this site I believe, but is very active on

That's a link to his site.
I've seen lots of talk about Gordon's work over on the XS site, I've been lurking over there off and on for just a few weeks. Gordon has a really sweet side hack XS with a nicely done up scrambler style exhaust. What I've been wanting is a High 2 -1 that goes into a reverse megaphone style exhaust, think Arrow or Zard scrambler (with out the price tag). Your setup is great, I like how the megaphone has a nice up-sweep as apposed to the Mac 2-1.

It's probably time I send an email off to Gordon and get some input. Oh, and thanks for the link.
Knowing if the forecast is accurate is like trying to predict the weather… Pack warm
